When Canadian figure skater Kaetlyn Osmond won the bronze on medal today in Pyeongchang, it was the country’s record 27th medal.


Canada sets national record with 27 Olympic medals – Myles Dichter, CBC Sports:

Canadians have won 10 gold medals in South Korea so far, to go along with eight silver and nine bronze.


The 27 medals also represent Canada’s second biggest haul for any Olympics ever, behind the 1984 Summer Games in Los Angeles where the Soviet Union and 15 other countries boycotted. Canada won 44 medals in Los Angeles.

With a couple more days of competition to go, Norway, with 37, will surely finish first on the overall medals-won table. However, Canada is currently in second, which would also be a best-ever result.
